Turbo Boot

I keep blowing the turbo boot on the passenger side of the turbo. It has happened twice now. The first time i figured it just wiggled loose, but I put it back on and it happened within a week of me tighting it down.

This time i looked inside the boot and it looked like it had a small tear around the seal.

Where is the best place to get replacement boots?

I think the general consensus is that Riff Raff makes good replacements. I have mine, just haven't put them on yet.

I've also hear people say to use hairspray to help keep them from slipping off. Not exactly sure if you just spray a little on the inside or what. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

I just ordered mine from Tousley to make sure they were the right size and all (newbie). I am a chick so I know the uses of hairspray so it is funny you mention it. The original had staples to keep it in the right position but I used hairspray in a pump bottle and let it get tacky before putting it back on. I used it in high school on. Y hair and I swear that stuff would put a sagging headliner back up better than adhesive

Do a search on diesel site boots.

Try this:

Got "Diesel Site Boots"?

The search tool is great!

Yeah, I went with the Riff Raff after having issues with my Dieselsite boots. The RR appear to be GREAT quality and have done well for over 3000 miles so far. The true test will be summertime towing pulling long, steep grades in the 100+ temperatures...
